On the FIFTH Gluten-Free Day of Christmas
my Health Coach gave to me . . .
. . . the gift of research
As a teacher, I always told my students to read, read, read! Now I am still reading and living that truth!
Collect your books at the library, or bookstore, and do your research on gluten-free living.
Take your last gift of books
and move it up a level!
I recall feeling like I’d completed a doctorate degree by all I had read and learned about gluten-free living when starting this journey!
Learn where you find gluten. You’ll quickly see that it’s not just in bread and pasta. It’s hidden all around: soups, salad dressings, snacks, desserts, frozen foods, and meats, to name a few. You need to know what to look for and which ingredient words mean gluten. My mom’s favorite licorice is made with gluten! Check your spices, medicines, and even your toothpaste.
Research and learn.
Read and look through all the books you’ve collected from the library.
Look up gluten-free information on-line- yet be careful of your resources.
(There is a lot of misinformation shared)
Take notes to remember good points, tips and recipes.
Learn what you can apply to your life.
Make yourself a lovely cup of ginger tea,
relax in your favorite chair, read and learn!
**During this holiday season check your candy canes!
Some companies use gluten so the cellophane wrapping
doesn’t stick to the candy cane.
